Want to see your home or business drawn as a piece of art?  You have come to the right place.  The above rendering is the Historic Allen Fieldhouse at The University of Kansas.  It was completed in roughly 50 hours and was done using Trimble SketchUp. A version of the software is available for download free from http://sketchup.google.com, enabling you to manipulate our files in any way you choose.

We can recreate almost any home or building.  Through field measurements, or with access to construction documents and detailed photographs, we can create beautiful works of art.  The following example is of the Parson Capen House in Topsfield, Massachusetts.  The image was created using measured drawings executed by the Historic American Buildings Survey.  The details are exacting, right down to the carved pendants and brackets.

We are also capable of creating fictional structures using historical styles.  These 3D models are perfect for Historical Societies in recreating 3D maps of what their towns might have looked like or for someone wanting to create an historic backdrop for almost any type of project.  The image below is of a fictional structure that was created using historical details from the Colonial and Federal Styles.

Want to see your structure as art or Have a Vision for a New Home? 
My Grandfather once said, "When it came time to build my dream home, I didn't really know what I wanted." Don't find yourself in that predicament.

Describe your dream home to us or talk to us about an historic structure you are fond of and let us generate an original rendering. What we can do is draw almost any structure in any style you choose. These are not construction drawings, they do serve, however, as a clear communications tool so that you can get the look you want for the home (or office space) of your dreams or as a beautiful work of art for your home.  Once complete, we can play with paint colors, window designs, and interior layout so that you can get the "what you want" into an image that helps working with the builder.

Contact Us to convert your ideas, photographs, or blueprints to similar renderings for your project or for any work of art you would like.
